  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 9 muffins
Ingredients:
  • 1¼ cups whole grain flour (any preferred variety)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped
  • ¾ cup ripe banana puree (about 2 bananas)
  • ¾ cup grated zucchini (about ½ medium zucchini)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce

 

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350˚.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts.

In a separate bowl, mix banana and zucchini, egg, maple syrup, vanilla and applesauce.

Pour wet ingredients into dry and combine. Take care not to over-mix—stir no more than 15 to 20 times.

Fill each muffin tin about ¾ of the way. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean.

Serving suggestions: Enjoy a muffin as a delicious snack, or if you’re looking for a light breakfast, simply top one with 1 tablespoon of nut butter, or enjoy with a nonfat yogurt or 3 scrambled egg whites on the side.
